Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A brilliant and funny cross-cultural love story from a prize-winning Chinese film-maker and author. Deliberately written in bad English, it follows a Chinese woman called Z as she moves to London and falls for an older English man. With each chapter being the definition of a word, it is a fiendishly clever book which pokes fun at England and China and is sure to attract a lot of media attention.

Synopsis:

When a young Chinese woman, newly arrived in London, moves in with her English boyfriend, she decides it’s time to write a Chinese-English dictionary for lovers. Xiaolu’s first novel in English is an utterly original journey of self-discovery.

From the Trade Paperback edition.
